【业果 KARMA】业会增长广大 The magnification of karma

业果 : 业会增长广大

【此亦如《集法句》云:「虽造微少恶,他世大怖畏,当作大苦恼,犹如入腹毒。虽造微少福,他世引大乐,亦作诸大义,如诸谷丰熟。」】

这个就是指增长,虽然你造了很少的一点点恶业,但是感果的时候,感到绝大的恐怖,极大的苦恼。为什么?它增长嘛!就像一点点的毒,一跑到你身上,毒虽然一点点,结果把你这么大的身体弄坏掉了,它会增长的。反过来,造了微少的一点点的福,下一世可感到绝大的快乐。就像谷子一样,那个谷子种下去是那么去一粒,喔唷,长出来是这么多!长出来这么多,各式各样的,譬如说,我们种一个随便的一棵树,苹果树,一粒子那么小,喔!长出来的满树的苹果,说不定几百斤,它会增长的,就是这个道理。

【Karma】- The magnification of karma

【Moreover, it is said in the Collection of Indicative Verses:
Like a poison that has been ingested,
The commission of even a small sin
Creates in your lives hereafter
Great fear and a terrible downfall.

As when grain ripens into a bounty,
Even the creation of small merit
Leads in lives hereafter to great happiness
And will be immensely meaningful as well. 】

This shows magnification. Even though you have created very little bad karma, when the effect is produced, you will be in tremendous fear and misery. Why? It has magnified! Just like a little bit of poison, if it gets in your body, even though it's just a little, it can destroy your big body, because it can magnify. On the contrary, when you create a little merit, it can produce tremendous happiness in the next life. Just like the grain, it is only a seed when you plant it. Ah-yo! Once it grows, the harvest can be so great! It can produce so much, all sorts of things. For instance, we can just casually plant any tree, an apple tree. We put in such a small seed, oh! It can grow up to produce a tree full of apples, perhaps even a few hundred pounds. It will continue to magnify. This is the principle.
